This is an excellent restaurant especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. Unfortunately this restaurant is only open in the summer months but is certainly well worth a visit

Owned by an English lady this is a lovely place to eat. Done out well & a good choice on the menu. Staff friendly & helpful. Compared to other places it is cheap. You can sit inside or out so even if its a bit cold you won't be. Can park in front of the restaurant too.

Visited this little restaurant while on holiday in Turkey. Very clean and tidy with friendly and helpful staff. Owned by an English lady from circus family, hence the name. The menu is excellent with a varied choice, prices slightly more than other restaurants in the town but well worth paying the little extra for the quality. Just up the main... More

We visited the Circus last week and was a little disappointed with the food and service. Not sure if it was due to being towards the end of the season, however this should not matter. We visited at the same time in 2015 and found the food great and service was very good. We put it down to a "BAD... More
